For many of us the design and the template are the most important, making our readers be more interested and coming back to our blog. There’s an HTML element meant for marking up keyboard keys named <kbd> which can be styled with CSS, so why not use it to make those elements look the keyboard keys?
Thus, in this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create a keyboard keys effect with CSS. It doesn’t require images so your blog will load faster.
How to Add Keyboard Keys to Blogger
Step 1. From Blogger Dashboard, select your blog and go to Template > Edit HTML
Step 2. Click anywhere inside the code area, press the Ctrl + F keys and search for this piece of code:
|Click on the arrow to expand the code|
Step 3: Just above ]]></b:skin> paste this CSS style:
border:1px solid gray;
box-shadow:1px 0 1px 0 #eee, 0 2px 0 2px #ccc, 0 2px 0 3px #444;
Step 4. To save the changes, press the Save change button.
Finally, we need to add the html <kbd> tags to the text on which we want to apply the keyboard keys style.

<kbd>Ctrl</kbd> + <kbd>F</kbd>
This will make it to look like this:
Ctrl + F
